Sherrie Hamilton is an American - a widow with an eight-year-old daughter, Minnie. She has come to London with her cousins, Faith and Daisy and her aunt Dora t ...

Lady Cat

I’m always interested to see how older titles bear up over time and Lady Cat has a premise I rather like, so it was an easy choice. That premise is one that is also featured in one of my favourite historical romances, Lorraine Heath’s Waking up with the Duke; that of a man who needs an heir b ...

The Cad and the Co-ed

I enjoyed the first two books in the Rugby series and frequently recommend them to fans looking for great sports romances.  Entertaining, romantic and filled with great locker room banter and sports references, The Cad and the Co-ed is a delightful addition to this particular series.  But … it i ...

The Governess's Secret Baby

One thing you can say about Harlequin Historicals – What You See is generally What You Get when it comes to titles, and The Governess’s Secret Baby is pretty much exactly what it says on the cover.  This is the final book of The Governess Tales, a set of four books written by four different aut ...

Thrown Down

I’m a big fan of hot contemporary romance series and looked forward to the Made in New Jersey books by Tessa Bailey. I very much enjoyed another book I read of Ms. Bailey’s - Chase Me. That story featured relatable characters with great chemistry, sharp, witty dialogue, and steamy sex scenes. My ...

Home on the Range

This book is the second in Susan Fox’s Caribou Crossings series, but readers need not read the first book in order to enjoy this one. It does well as a stand-alone. This is a fairly solid book that might have made it into DIK territory if the author had not resorted to more than one deus ex machin ...

Sweet Trouble

The final installment in Susan Mallery's Keyes sisters trilogy, provides redemption for Jesse, the family bad girl. Despite her checkered past, I found her to be a likable, interesting heroine. Five years have passed since Jesse – pregnant and broke - left Seattle after being wrongly accused ...

An Everlasting Love

Bette Ford’s latest contemporary, An Everlasting Love, is an emotional read about a heroine with one huge obstacle to overcome and a hero who is patient enough to wait. Brynne Armstrong had almost everything she wanted. She was on track to getting the degree she promised her deceased parents sh ...

Her Secret, His Child

I'm beginning to think Tara Taylor Quinn is a find. I very much enjoyed her first single title for Harlequin, last year's Sheltered in His Arms. It was the first book of hers I'd read, and I went on red alert for her other titles. I'm happy to say that the next one I read, Her Secret, His Child was ...

What The Heart Knows

"Oh, man," I thought, when I read the cover of Kathleen Eagle's new book, "not another secret-baby story!" But saying Eagle has written a secret-baby book is like saying Margaret Mitchell wrote about the Civil War. What the Heart Knows is a finely crafted and moving tale of love, loss, and a chain o ...
